Part 15: Generalized Regression Applications FGLS Feasible GLS is based on finding an estimator  which has the same properties as the true GLS. Example Var[e i]  =  s 2 [Exp( g ¢ zi )]2. True GLS would regress  y/[s  Exp( g ¢ zi )]  on the same  transformation of  xi . With a consistent estimator of [s , g ], say [s, c ], we  do the same computation with our estimates. So long as plim [s, c ] = [s , g ], FGLS is as “good”  as true GLS.        •   Consistent        •   Same Asymptotic Variance        •   Same Asymptotic Normal Distribution ™  5/45

Part 15: Generalized Regression Applications Heteroscedasticity Setting: The regression disturbances have unequal variances, but are still not correlated with each other: Classical regression with hetero-(different) scedastic (variance) disturbances. yi = xi + i, E[i] = 0, Var[i] = 2 i, i > 0. The classical model arises if i = 1. A normalization: i i = n. Not a restriction, just a scaling that is absorbed into 2. A characterization of the heteroscedasticity: Well defined estimators and methods for testing hypotheses will be obtainable if the heteroscedasticity is “well behaved” in the sense that no single observation becomes dominant.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
